that the economic philosophy of republicans has caused a massive amount of wealth for everyone. and education is ripe if reform and republican principles are perfect for minority voters. >> should i let you weigh in? >> i'm sorry. >> why are you laughing? >> you're laughing at education. expound upon your laughter on education. >> well, because its s's ridicus to try to think that the party who tried to get rid of the department of education is the one who wants to push education. it's ridiculous to think the tent that wanted to gut the teachers union want to push education. the party that wanted to take funding away from education is now the party in favor of education. that's reason i started laughing. >> those policieses worked well for you over the last 40 years. those schools that you're professing that teachers unions have a hold on on are doing really well. where school choice and charter schools that's what's doing well and voters across minority voters to voters of every ethnicity tick have seen the benefits of those kind of schools. >> by this argument, we can see how difficult the
to see better educated, but you understand that an effective member has to negotiate and has to compromise to come to some sort of final product. otherwise you will never get a final product. >> i agree with -- what is the biggest problem we face today that we are just stop gone? it is this fiscal crisis, the budget. families are looking at it and saying i have got to deal with this all the time, and you guys cannot deal with it. the biggest thing to me would be the leadership of congress to recognize that the budget aocess has to be utilized in way that gets this issue resolved, because if we go every three months with more in decision and 11th-hour -- making, thetizen frustration that people have to live their lives and cannot figure out the process, it will drive them nuts and treat the most negative phillies in the world. it is the responsibility of leadership to make this process work, and they have to act like leaders, like tom daschle did and some of the other folks. >> changing the rules might take the incentive structure, but ultimately is about the men and women who
government at home and abroad. >> rand paul wants to accomplish the departments of education and congress and epa. >> small detail. >> and the federal reserve and abolish the income tax. the second amendment which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic se
an expansion of engineering and science education, talks about reducing the deficit by eliminate willing waste. how concerned should the gop be about mark sanford's ability to win in the palmetto state now? >> i think they should be very concerned. she is a very impressive candidate in her own right. take away who her brother might or might nop not be or is. take away the baggage that mark sanford has, she is an impressive candidate on her own. an important point to make. that being said, it is likely that sanford will have challenges with women voters in a general election. newt gingrich won the primary. >> what are you trying to imply about our state? >> any time we predict what voters can do they go and do the exact opposite. >> especially in south carolina. >> exactly. no question. my point is even with all the things we are talking about, a tough race for sanford, she is such a strong candidate answered does have real baggage to deal w >> katon, you were quoted in politico, it looks to me like governor sanford has a tough hill to climb, not getting 40% have to convince people who didn't v
were widely denied an education. now, more than eight million students attend afghan schools and more than 40% of them are female. in 2001 afghanistan had 20,000 teachers, all male. today there are 200,000 teachers including 60,000 women. the number of schools in afghanistan has grown from 3400 in 2001 to more than 16,000 today. per capita gdp has grown fourfold since 2001. afghan life expectancy has increased 20 years since then. more than 18 million afghans now have telephone access compared to about one million ten years ago. now these facts do not eliminate the difficulties that we face. they continue insurgency, a neighbor, pakistan that remains a safe haven for insurgents moving across the border. an ineffective and often corrupt central government and other major barriers to stability and to progress. just as it is important for us to be realistic about the challenges that we face in afghanistan, it's also important that we recognize the advances that have an bp made. so that we can reinforce actions that promote success. i just mentioned two here. the first is to continue to w
. it would be an enormous gift to mcconnell. >> sean: a gift. >> really, okay, let me educate you about a recent poll. because clearly you don't-- >> tamara is it possible for he you to educate me? >> i know, you know it all. opponents two-one. he's like a crypt keeper, he won't go away. >> sean: like the former klansman who used to head up your party from west virginia. >> you, two, mcconnell isn't doing anything. nobody likes him. whether you like ashley judd, or not. -- >> tamara, tamara, i will bet any amount of money if ashley judd runs against mitch mcconnell in kentucky, she will not be a senator from the state of kentucky-- tennessee, i'm sorry. >> and left leaning, a left leaning pollster currently has mcconnell leading all. and a left-leaning pollster. >> because she's incredibly polarizing. some of the things she said, it was unconscionable to breed. >> sean: unconscionable to breed. >> because there are so many starving children. and has a problem with a father giving away a daughter at the wedding. >> sean: keep going. >> a problem with christianity because it legitimizes m
and educational grants to train people how to be safe in using their guns, and also provide for an age level for young people not being able to have these guns. this is the way that america wants us to go. let us travel a pattern of saving jobs and preventing gun violence, intervening in the lives of those who need our protection. that's what this congress should be doing, providing the pathway for america's success. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from kentucky seek recognition? mr. rogers: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that the speaker may postpone further proceedings on the motion to concur in the senate amendments to h.r. 933, as though under clause 8-a-1-a of rule 20. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. bjection is heard. objection is withdrawn. there is no objection, so ordered. the gentleman from contract seek recognition. mr. rogers: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on h.r.
, or defund education, they'll say we don't want to cut the entitlement programs, we want education paid for and so forth and so on and then they vote for the people who want to do the opposite. >> hal: yeah or in the case of rand paul eliminate the department of education. >> yes. i have become kind of the avatar for ashley judd even though i don't think that is accidental or that she wanted me to but people in kentucky tend to vote with people who they feel comfortable comfortable and not necessarily people they agree with. and i think that's why she has such a great chance at beating mitch mcconnell. because people are tired of mitch mcconnell. >> hal: in all fairness mitch mcconnell is not comfortable with mitch mcconnell. >> exactly. >> hal: he never seems to feel comfortable with himself. when nancy pelosi was speaker of the house, there were so many stalled bills that were worthwhile that were not getting through jnow there's the exact opposite. there is a stampede of republican bills that are never going to nakt the senate that are going to make it through.
to mobilize your membership? when are you going to go after the education communicate, the teachers to come out and make a stand? they're working on that right now. so i think the momentum is not going to die. i think you're going to continue to see efforts to, both on the federal and the state level to take action to promote gun safety measures, things that are wildly popular. even in kentucky, 75% of the citizens say they're for background checks. 65% of kentuckians say they're for registration for guns in the state. so again not all the action has to take place at the federal level. it can happen at the state level as well. >> michael: which is important to remember when you think about that being kentucky the kind of sentiment the kinds of guns people have in this country. before i let you go, it is the anniversary of the iraq war and tell me what president bush's legacy as it pertains to the iraq war. >> well, i was a journalist in 2003 when the iraq war began. i editorialized. i looked at three different occasions we need to be careful about how we go to war. we need to be skeptical o
, they won't suffer harm. but if they want to give their kids a home education through home schooling, they will be jailed. they would have severe fines. that is what happened before. every family who wants to home school is persecuted in the same way. the justice department is saying that the fines and the jails -- that's not persecution. >> shannon: it's a fact that the police did show up and take the children and force them to go to school in 20 06, when the family was there in germany, electing to have them at home. the obama administration basically said that their experience is the reason they had trouble in germany was because they refused to comply with the law. how could you say it was ever religious persecution, if you are disobeying the law because of religious beliefs? >> that's right. the religious persecution is defined similarly to our constitutional principles. if the law's unconstitutional. if the law violates human rights, have you an asylum claim. if germany wasn't banning home schooling, there wouldn't be an issue and it it wasn't a human rights issue, there wouldn
. new york educators have given the green light for a curriculum that contains picture books with realistic details of war. they include the librarian of basra which contains drawings of fighter planes dropping bombs on a palm tree lined middle eastern town and people wondering who will die. the lessons will be used in third through fifth grade. >>steve: wonder whose idea that is? >>ainsley: not mine. >>steve: 25 minutes before the top of the hour. we were talking about the bracket. he's our bracketeer, mr. kilmeade. >>brian: let's talk basketball. louisville scoring the top seed tournament last night. other top seeds: kansas in the south, gonzaga in the west and indiana in the east. kentucky failing to make the tournament. they are stunned. tempers flaring after denny hamlin hits his former teammate, spinning him around. begano racing over to hamlin. the two had to be pulled apart. then they went to a twitter war. they are really mad at each other and called each other out. and now the two bushes finishing the top five. coming up between 9 and noon between kilmeade and frie
of growth. what i say certain things shouldn't be done in washington. department of education i'd send it back to the states. that's what reagan said, what the republican party said. i'm one of the few who would dismantle some of the big bad things in washington and just say, that should remain with the states and the people. that's the only way you'll ever shrink the size of government, eliminating some departments. >> sean: i agree with that, i think that the states would do a better job. they would be serving the needs of the people in their community which makes a lot of sense. i was really in agreement with you over you tried to get your fellow senators and i was disappointed in some republican senators, to defund or at least put on hold the money that we're giving to the 9/11 truther and the guy, the former terrorist that refers to the israelis as descendents of apes and pigs, mohammed morsi. why are we giving this it guy f-16's, tanks, 1.5 billion dollars a year? >> it's beyond me and you know, we've closed down white house tours, but president obama somehow found 250 million ex
school children in new york. educators have given a green light to english curriculum that includes picture books with realistic portrayals of war for 8-year-olds. one contains fighter planes dropping bombs on a middle eastern town. another depicts an abduction of a young man from his home. it will be used in the third through 5th grade. >> a colorado sheriff taking a stand against two aggressive new gun control managers. john cook says he won't enforce expanded background checks on firearms purchases or a 15 round limit on ammunition magazines. criminals are still going to get their guns. democratic governor is expected to sign the measures into law. >>> an oregon girl is being hailed as a hero saving her family from a fire. the 7-year-old says she woke up in the house filled with smoke. she woke up her brother, her father and his girlfriend. >> i opened the door i and i cannot see. >> it was kind of surreal. walked out and freaking out inside trying to stay cool on the outside. get everybody out of the house. >> where the drier used to be so hot it milted t-- melted the sink. >> f

third week. michigan's head start program could be next on the shopping block. nbc's chief education correspondent rehema ellis is joining me this afternoon from detroit and rehema, with a long distance hello to you, my friend, for many students in detroit there are problems with this education system which are now magnified by the statewide economic troubles. you kn i know you were talking about this issue with the governor. >> we were, and we're going to talk about it all with students when we have a town hall meeting here just a little while from now that everybody can watch online on education nation.com. but the governor says that they have no choice but to make some changes here because of the dire situation that they're in as far as their budget is concerned. the changes have been controversial. but when you think about it, just this one quick statistic, 27% of african-american students who are in the 11th grade and only 62% of white students in the 11th grade are reading at or above proficiency. and the governor says they have got to do better than that. just listen. >> if yo
with continuing education and we're going to make sure we have research technology and innovation that's going to make our next generation prepare for their intellectual move forward into the 21st century jobs. >>> now to kentucky. new reporting suggests a number of big-time democrats not particularly thrilled with the idea of ashley judd challenging mitch mccouple in that state. some party leaders, including former president bill clinton, are trying to court another candidate, another female, allison lundergan grimes. ms. judd will make her announcement later this spring, a claim she has denied. her sister said of course i'd vote for her. i don't agree with anything she says half the time. we're so different. but i love my sister. >>> president obama's initiative to reduce violence in this country has been severely weakened. democratic majority leader harry reid said a ban on assault weapons. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have no get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues that i tal
that the investments we make in education and the infrastructure are devastated in the ryan budget, and he makes false promising that could be kept about reducing the tax rates. the only people that are protected in the ryan budget are the wealthiest and the largest corporations. they tell the rest of america, you are responsible for managing this debt that we have gotten into. our budget takes a very different approach. it is balanced in terms of making sure we move to responsibly managing our debt and deficit, getting our deficit down to less than 3% of the gdp, as every economist in the bowls simps simpson, all the gang of six have focused us on doing, but also make sure we make that investments to keep our middle class strong. >> the point of our budget is to make sure that we show that we have a ten-year plan, if we can put it into place, we will get our economy moving again, we will begin to manage our debt, and we will quit doing this management by crisis where every time we turn around, the republicans say they'll shut the government down if we don't cut more. we need to have a responsible pla
severe particularly on education and children's programs. a new member who's a darling of the tea party said his growth projecti projections, paul ryan's growth projections which he uses to get the balance are much too optimist optimistic. so here you have two republicans who are very much concerned about deficit reduction who say this budget won't do it. >> okay, congressman. as you know, house democrats are also out with their budget. joining senate democrats in calling for more revenue as well as spending to create jobs. but paul ryan didn't seem too optimistic about this this morning. take a listen to what he said. >> all the democratic budgets have one theme. more taxes, higher spending, never balancing the budget. if you look at these two budgets, yeah, we're two worlds apart. we're literally on different planets. >> he says you're literally on different planets. do you, therefore, have any hope of a compromise? >> well, not very much with paul ryan. i do believe that as steny hoyer, the himinority whip said he thinks republicans are going to have a difficult time getting votes fo
defense education loans i was in the peace corps, changed my lives. my father worked for the city of philadelphia. i have no problem with public service. that's where i'm at. that's how i got here. your party says that's degraded. i got a 47% because my father is on a g.i. bill and ended up on social security. what's wrong with government? >> look it -- >> good for most people. am i addicted to government? >> first of all, as a country, particularly to washington they're addicted to spending. we created this massive point -- >> you're on there. that's your winning -- you got the win card right there. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter phot
, minorities, college educated voters, especially women. majority issues. while it is difficult to pass them congressionally, blocking them and unifying opposition is not without cost in terms of peeling from constituency to win back the white house. >> think of it as a presidential race, you look at the national numbers, that's one thing. when you look at the battleground states, that's another. one thing about joe biden. joe biden was part of the coalition that got the ban on assault weapons passed. >> that was a long time ago. >> he feels strongly. joe biden is a visceral politician. what you played in that sound byte, i feel sorry for my political colleagues, they have to vote this way, even though they don't really believe it. when you think about that, it is a tough statement. >> gloria, the problem is more the opposite, in '94 when they passed it, 38 house republicans from blue districts felt compelled to vote for it. today, gun control advocates have not been able to, they have to go out to mayor efforts and others, they have to beat some republicans in blue leaning areas that voted
of planning. there's a lot talk in sacramento about expanding online education. it is a great question. online is one of many strategies that faculty and staff at university will lose. i'm more worried about the technology systems on campus. all of our students need to develop well-trained technological skills. those students are going to step out into the job market. the faculty have the quality question on their mind. they want access to online. we don't know how much of that is when to work for a street will we have been on a great pass tariq connect with our alumni network. right now my flight mauser one-and-a-half times around the earth. i'm focusing on campus. and you tend to break off your connections to the alumni base. the alumni is very critical movie for. we need to connect to our alumni base in asia and the pacific rim. by doing a good will to our visit with israel. we're gonna do a number of different things. we need our alumni network to be in touch and in rhythm with us on campus. and we'll be right back. save up to 40% on closeout sets from beautyrest and posturepedic. save hun
to prohibit discrimination or preferential treatment in education, government contracting and unemployment based on race, sex, ethnicity or national origin. the case will be heard in the fall. let's bring back the gaggle. i want to talk about the other big issue in the news which is guns. kristin, your party, this doesn't seem like we have no assault weapons ban, certainly there's going to be a vote, unlikely to pass. we have nothing on high capacity magazines. where does it go from here? >> trying to find the small victories that can be scored. a lot of republicans are in favor of things that try to keep guns out of the hands of folks with serious mental health problems. those are the steps i think we will be taking. >> background checks passed? >> you have 85% of gun owners. >> 85% in quinnipiac poll. >> it depends on whether joe man chen, senator from west virginia can get a deal that brings some republicans. >> plug? >> all about me, gibbs birthday week. wednesday was my brother, friday my dad, today is mine. happy birthday to my brother. >> shoutout to my six-year-old niece, her birth
to listen to the message you have about the economy, about health care, about education. because they're so turned off by the rhetoric about illegal immigration. and that i think is what ari and the republican party is talking about now. >> so john berman has covered politics for a gazillion years. richard, you are my nonpolitico. are you moved? is there a sense of a relaunch? >> i'm the type of person that i'm to be persuaded, right some but to me, i know especially this 18 to 29 group, i just feel like it seems like marketing. and i hear the word brand and to me that makes it seem that it's not authentic. so i think social issues, but this idea of the package and -- it just seems like a branding and a marketing thing and i think a lot of young people are pretty wise to that sort of approach. >> so let's go right back then to jake. when you look at the cpac, right, and the straw poll that came out of that, you had rand paul winning with 25%, right behind was marco rubio, something like 23%. and you had contra ticker to me contradictory messages. again, polar opposites on the state of the r
in education, the infrastructure, the bridges and the tunnels. there's no money in the republican, because they say that we're taking care of revenues. where the heck that is in the constitution that you can't raise revenues, i don't know. but it's not right. >> i want to switch gears and talk to you about guns a bit. we just talked about it with our last group of folks. 85% of folks in this country when you ask about background checks they say they support the idea. background checks aren't a done deal. looks like the assault weapons ban is not going to happen. ban on high capacity clips is probably not going to happen. why is there such a, a gap between what folks say they want in terms of gun control and what you guys down in d.c. are willing to do? >> i may get trouble for this, but i don't think that 85% of americans have the slightest idea who their member of congress is or that they vote for them, or that short of their life depending on it, that they know how to get in touch with them in order to express their feelings. one thing is xleclear. the gun manufacturers and national rifl
for him to educate people and in these red states where i live in south georgia, we don't need the education from michael bloomberg about our guns, rights to guns. most are in favor of some type of backgrund checks. in georgia, to have a carry permit, you have one. the devil is in the details. i'm not confident in eric holder and the department of justice to implement laws, new laws on the books when he won't even enforce the current gun laws on the books. >> so does patrick have something here that mayor bloomberg's reputation as a guy who runs a nanny state or tries to, does he really have any sway over people who are on the fence? >> this is a political red herring. oh, this week it's michael bloomberg and it used to be nancy pelosi and it used to be barack obama. you can use all the scary liberal names, but the reality on the ground, police who don't tend to vote democratic, even police are in favor of what the mayors are suggesting. michael bloomberg maying t be t face, but he's speaking for mayors there cleveland, from detroit, from indianapolis. mayors who are saying i n
education that is so vital and so important that these members of congress can pay for. when they vote to make medicare a voucher program and then not give a big enough voucher to buy health care, that means a lot of people aren't going to get the health care that they need. a lot of seniors are not going to have the only protection that they have got. you can go right down the line. what about food stamps? they don't care. none of their family are on food stamps so they just cut the program. on the one hand it is a good deal, but, but, but, politicians ought to do the right thing all the time, not just when their son or daughter or brother or sister are getting hurt by the politicians. their votes and policies really do hurt real people and so rob portman, yeah, good for you for seeing the light. wish some of your fellow republicans followed your example and with rob portman had seen the light sooner and seen the light on a lot of other issues. 866-55-press, 866-557-7377, and by the way paul ryan is the worst of all, and john boehner goes along with that as do most

[now arriving: city hospital] which is why we're proud to help connect our students with leading employers across the nation. [next stop financial center] >> the republican party widely viewed as being stuffy, out of touch, especially scary, a bunch old men? and this is what the party is saying about itself today. i'm not making this up. these are the words i just read right out of the gop self described autopsy. that's right, they're calling this an autopsy. remember, campaign 2012, they lost the presidential election, lost seats in the house, blew an opportunity to seize control of the senate. here is the party's chairman, rins pl reince priebus. >> i think wanted the report to be real, they wanted it to be honest, if it had to be raw and maybe few pieces of china needed to be broken. but i think this is what our party needed. >> so let's stick straight into this. his specialty is republican ad campaigns. alex, welcome. good grief, stuffy, out of touch, scary, do you think the part
, and -- of making sure that we have -- had more for hire education. >> bill: interesting, yeah so it's the policies really that they saw for president obama that they supported. and on the immigration reform do you believe that a guest worker program will be or should be part of it? i mean we talk about the path to citizenship, and i think there are some differences on that, but most people agree there has to be some path to citizenship even if it's difficult, but the guest worker program is a core controversial part of it. >> it is a difficult part. we definitely have to having a cultural workers here in order to support our economy, but to have some kind of permanent guest worker program in place, that is controversial, and a point of contention. >> bill: yeah, and a lot of people -- democrats and republicans on both sides of that. two important issues, the ryan budget, sounds like we're going to see some action on that today, and on immigration reform. congress woman judy chu thanks for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> bill: all right. of course as
